The Manitoba government will release its first crop report for the 2023 growing season on May 16, Agriculture Minister Derek Johnson announced today.
“The agricultural industry is the backbone of Manitoba’s economy,” said Johnson. “We are pleased to provide regular, accurate updates on growing conditions and potential risks to help producers make informed crop management decisions throughout the growing season.”
Crop reports are released on a weekly basis every growing season and provide ongoing updates on Manitoba growing conditions with a regional focus. The format of the reports reflect feedback from producers and industry to make them concise and easy to interpret.
The reports also provide:
- summaries of weather issues that could affect crop management;
- updates on potential pest issues including weeds, insects and disease, in addition to resources to help manage these challenges;
- details on smaller acreage crops such as dry beans, sunflower and oats and information on seeding and harvest progress from current and past years;
- information on the progress of seeding, crop establishment, crop development, harvest progress, crop yields and grades, fall field work progress, and the status of winter cereal crop seeding and establishment; and
- information on haying progress and estimated yields as well as pasture conditions.
The weekly reports will be released on Tuesdays by 4 p.m.
